16th Jecheon International Music & Film Festival

Journey to Jah
Germany/Switzerland | 2013 | 92min | DCP | COLOR | Documentary


Journey to Jah is a tale of seeking a spiritual home in a foreign culture, featuring people who are connected by one thing: music. Two directors spent 7 years shadowing two unique reggae artists– the German ‘Gentleman’ and Italian ‘Alborosie’ – on their search for authenticity away from western consumerist societies in the land of Rastafari and reggae: Jamaica. People they meet along the way include Richie Stephens, Damian Marley and also Natty – a driver and friend of ‘Gentleman’, who offers them an uncluttered look into the daily struggle for survival, far removed from the picture-book image of the Caribbean island.
